A true legend when it comes to the art of weapon photography.
Mostly known for his unique style of putting weapons in front of a white canvas.

A huge inspiration and a ton of weapon pictures on his account.
He is known to be the guy that Special Operation Forces people go to, to get their weapons immortalized as pictures.
Meaning many of the pictures you see there come straight out of the arm from some SWAT or Delta Force guys etc.

Blimey those are some clear pictures :icon_eek:

Aside from the great images, looks like a good spot for referencing in future as well.

Wink Wink ! You are right, those really teach you a lot when it comes to lighting.

My old renders were all having a white canvas because of it :D Can still be seen here:

As much as I like it, I decided to rerender everything with a dark background which just feels more impressive. That studio white background on 3D renders looks just too much like it's an alpha cutout.
But that doesn't change the fact that the light is still very interesting to take notes from when looking at these real pictures.

That is very helpful Tim. I was currently looking for references for my next model. Thanks for the great share.
